Pardon The Interruption!

Pardon the Interruption!  Hello, Hello, HELLLLO!

Its been several months since my last post and I have missed blogging oh so much! But honestly, a ton is going on.

I am happy to announce we FINALLY moved into our house.  It took about 7 months from closing day to be move-in ready. Although we still have a lot of settling in to do before we are fully unpacked,  so far we are loving our new home! We had an eventfully slow (to put it nicely) experience with our 203k renovation and it cost us a bit more than we anticipated, but otherwise, the process was what we assumed it would be. It’s still a route I recommend to the patient homebuyer,  but there are many things to take into consideration when choosing this option.

That’s the bad news!

The good news is, I am going to take these lemons and squeeze you all some yummy Lemon Martini’s in the form of blog posts all about 203K loans and tips for selecting your contractor. 

I am always down to hone my knowledge on this topic and as they say, experience is the best teacher.  And man has experience taught me some thangs!

Some other exciting news that is brewing and the main cause of why I have not blogged in months (or fully unpacked the house for that matter) is that….

What Will Change


I was just starting this blog and I guess I will be revamping it a bit already. But I’m super excited to do so. Honestly, not much will change. We will still talk all the time about the first time home buying process, saving, budgeting and life as a homeowner once you settle. The only difference is that under the Life as a Homeowner tab, I will be adding a section to document my parenting journey since life has changed so much since I became a homeowner.

It’s not uncommon to start procreating once you buy a house (life happens while christening all those brand new rooms!) so I feel this extra tab will only add to the fun we can have on this site!

Stay tuned for a separate post next week discussing my awesome Super Hero Themed Baby Shower and another post about tips I’ve learned the hard way about selecting a 203K Contractor!

I look forward to connecting with you guys again!
